Greetings from Bookcation: Vacation is Wherever Your Book Is

Hello dear reader, and hello 2021!

We’re not going to lie, we have been waiting for the new year to arrive for a VERY LONG TIME! At last it’s summer and with restrictions easing for now it’s time to take a break and enjoy some more wonderful reads. We know a lot of you found books a great comfort during 2020 so our friends at Simon & Schuster have decided to put together this magazine to share with you some of their favourite books that are coming this year and for you to meet the wonderful authors behind them.

There’s an exclusive extract from bestselling author Pip Drysdale’s new thriller The Paris Affair and an interview with Lisa Genova discussing her new book, Remember, which is about memory.

You’ll also find extracts for one of our favourite Australian debuts of this year, Grace Under Pressure, and a delightfully subversive short story from Chloe Wilson.

And because it’s all about summer vibes and enjoying long lazy days, you’ll also find recipes for coconut popsicles, Adam Liaw’s quick barbecued pork belly with spiced vinegar and Tori Haschka’s easy peasy recipe for her family-friendly pizza.

So dear reader, it’s time for you to sit back and start the year in the best way we know how… reading.
